across borders, and it's our contention that we have as governments, as private industry, and even as international organizations and even private individuals, which are becoming increasingly important on the international scene, obviously, we've erected artificial barriers to how we address these various challenges, and so whether it is working on a bureau that works on human trafficking that does not communicate with the bureau working on drug trafficking that does not communicate with the bureau working on proliferation issues, we've seen a government -- between governments and certainly between governments and private industries, it's really that nexus of issues that we draw together and begin to break down artificial barriers to the extent we can see across them even if we can't eliminate them entirely. brian, i'm extremely pleased, obviously, toking with you here to the simpson center, not only so you share in the party, but for a number of reasons. certainly, i enjoyed reading your book which i should mention to everyone in the room is available on amazon.com, and i highly r
